, there were all sorts of expectations that mahmoud ahmadinejad would go after the bang at the u.n. this week. after all, his final address as president of iran, but he didn't, at least not at the u.n., saving most of his rhetoric for media interviews. ahmadinejad was relatively tamed compared to earlier years. he was insistent that his nation was committed to peace. jim walsh, an expert at international security at mit joins me now and, jim, what was your take on this speech? >> well, deb, i think you're right. i expected, as happens every year, ahmadinejad, well, i expect many different ahmadinejads. i expect the ones that has meetings like the two meetings i attended is kindler and gentler and the one that speaks in front of the general assembly is fiery to speak to that audience back home in iran or send the message to the world and didn't happen. he was pretty tame all throughout. i think what we were getting was a message of, we're reasonable and we're willing to talk and that sort of sets the stage for what will happen the u.s. election and early next year. >> you know, jim, ahmadineja
minister of israel literally drew a red line for iran's nuclear program today as he addressed the u.n. general assembly. see him there? and he paused for effect. now, look at that rather crudely drawn bomb. this was no colin powell moment. there was a purposefully simple diagram, kind of like a cartoon, designed to make what benjamin netanyahu believes is a very serious, but simple point. >> by next spring at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will be finished with medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. from there, it's only a few months, possibly a few weeks, before they get enough enriched uranium for the fist bomb. >> but in his speech this week, president obama did not give any such timeline. he certainly didn't draw a red line. >> so let me be clear, america warrants to revolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> netanyahu thanked the president for tough sanctions, but was clear to say those sanctions have not impacted the country's nuclear program, but did he give a
, the obama administration today rejected calls for u.n. ambassad suzanne rice to resign, rice was on sunday morning show circuit 5 days after the benghazi attacks, maintaining evidence that pointed then to a spantainous ac -- spontanious attack. statements proved false by sources in the intelligence community and state department, and reported by fox news. a spoke person for secretary of state clinton said that secretary believes rice has done 88 a suburb job as -- done a quote, suburb job as u.n. ambassador. contravened their statements to the american people. and congress. we'll take all that up he tonight with former cia operative, mike baker, author of "new york times" bestseller, the amateur, inside look at obama administration. ed klein, what would mildred friedman think of obamanomics. is t this a cover-up by the obaa administration? certainly the administration has stonewalled congress and the national media about details of what happened on september 11. the obama administration is chosen to rely on the fbi to investigate the terrorist attacks in benghazi. which killed 4 americans
the streets in new york and the consulate in new york to the u.n. was damaged like in libya, there would have been hell to pay. what's the difference between where our ambassadors picked off by terrorist terrorists whether the votes of new york or benghazi. how is it possible the administration and the president, who should have superior knowledge, allows so board nants to tell multiple stories to the american people over a period of time? i believe the congress is fed up. the dni report suggests this was a terrorist attack, the white house has a lot of answers, and thank god for fox news being tenacious enough to cause the mainstream media not to ignore this. lou: ron, turning to the issue that brad is laying out before us, and that is now we have the dni correcting, if you will, unspecified initial impressions or at least a view, but at the same time, that contradicts recent assertions in 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. it seems this is beginning to compound this administration -- this administration is being -- it seems to be compounding the mistakes of judgment or the outright mi
had done this attack. the state department and ms. rice at the u.n. were still saying and mr. obama were still saying it was spontaneous uprising even though the killers had automatic antiaircraft cannon in which they were raking the building. that's not the kind of thing a person usually carries in his pocket. >> bill: rice is taking the heat for that the secretary of the united nations. it will be interesting to see who put her out there and told her to say what she said. >> very interesting. >> bill: possible that she said it on her own. it's not unheard of that a u.n. ambassador would do that most likely somebody said look, you have got to get out there and say x and y. hillary clinton is a very shrewd politician. she didn't say anything inadvertently one way or the other about the attack. i agree with you that the american intelligence agencies had to know it was hot over there in benghazi. certainly we could have done a better job protecting our people i'm not sure that hillary clinton was directly responsible for all of that. i'm saying that because of so much else on her pla
, not surprisingly, dismissed those commence -- comments as outrageous and unrealistic. >> shepard: the u.n. secretary general addressed those weapons today. >> yeah. obviously a lot of concern raised last week by leon panetta when he said there is some evidence that some of those chemical weapons stockpiles have been moved. as a result, perhaps, of that information, the u.n. secretary general gave a stark warning today to president assad of syria. listen. >> i once again emphasize the fundamental responsibility of the syrian government to ensure the safety and security of any such stockpiles. the use of such would be outrageous crime with dire consequences. >> although given the lack of action from the u.n. on anything to do with syria, warnings of dire consequences from the secretary general are likely to be taken with a healthy dose of a pinch of salt by the syrians, shep? >> shepard: jonathan, before we wrap things up at the united nations, i had no idea that the united states was ready to start a war with north korea to take over all of asia. who knew? >> those were the claims made tod
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
's the egyptian president warning the world, the u.n., that he will not allow -- this is the guy we have $2 billion taxpayer dollars a year, to egypt, warning, that he will not allow insults to the prophet. >> the insults on the prophet of islam muhammad is rejected. we reject this. we cannot accept it. we can be the opponents of those who do this. we will not allow anyone to do this by word or deed. >> sean: we will not allow anyone to do this by word or deed. >> his speech is absolutely outrageous. his demands on us when we're giving him $2 billion a year. his commands on us when t wants of the worst terrorists released. >> sean: you'd cut off funding? >> i'd cut off funding, make them beg for it in the future. let russia take them care of them. he wants the blind sheik released. he was responsible for the attack on my city i. he put a fatwa on one of my friends, the brave man that put him in jail. president obama can answer his question about whether egypt is an enemy or ally. it's clear where egypt is going, and this is because of the unrealistic way he tossed mubarak out without any th

rebels tortured and hanged people here. we have no way of proving this. the u.n. mostly accuses the regime of mass torture but says rebels are guilty of human rights abuse too. no one is safe, no faith is spared. christian churches and muslim mosques, a battleground. but one man is an optinift, the new governor of homs, syria's third city. these rebels, he says, will be beaten, and we'll win the war in homs in one month. >> one month. that seems very optimistic. >> one month he insists, but britain and america should stop supporting terrorists. they are his master's words. throughout the interview, explosions echo across the city. explosions, too, in syria's capital city, one at a military base. bombs smuggled inside and detonated by rebels. here, too, troops crack down on restive areas. one city, two wars, tens of thousands dead, and at united nations, complete failure to stop it. itv news, homs. >>> google maps takes a dive, but it's not a bad thing. we'll tell you about the new venture that gives us an up-close view of a whole other world. get two times the points on travel,

, msnbc special correspondent, tom brokaw. you have seen a lot of u.n. speeches. >> jon stewart teed it up saying it looks like a wiley coyote cartoon. this is a serious issue. seems the way the prime minister presented it before the united nations. >> had an american president did something like this, what would the reaction be? i am sort of shell shocked. >> take the two candidates, think about what they would have said if president obama had done something like that. >> george w. bush. >> from the right or george w. bush, or if mitt romney made a speech and held up that kind of a bomb and drew the line. it boggles the mind. these are serious issues. they are complex. the country and the world deserves to know exactly where we are in the process and where we're going to get to. >> i know that particularly netanyahu always savvy about the american media. this was clearly designed so that more of us would cover this. it was an and t-- antic. >> i think probably benjamin netanyahu's standing with important leaders is pretty well fixed, i don't think it moves it one way or another. he is a h
is calling on the u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, to resign for initially calling the attack, quote, spontaneous and not premeditated. >> she could have said it's uncertain as to exactly how it was done, it's unsure how it was done. but to rule out terrorism saying it was not a terrorist, that was wrong. she misled the people, either if it was unintentionally or done out of ignorance. in either case, she would do the right thing and step down and resign. >> yesterday the spokesman for the national intelligence director issued a statement saying they, "revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out extremists." brent colburn is the national communications director for the obama campaign. brent, good saturday to you. >> thanks for having me, craig. >> "the new york times" today has a piece. the piece is called "shifting reports on libya killings may cost obama." how concerned are you at this point about the way the white house has explained the attack on the embassy? >> sure. we
to do about it. let's listen. >> what is no secret, that our attempts to move forward at the u.n. security council have been blocked repeatedly. on tuesday i met with joint special representative raheemy to discuss alternative strategies, but the united states is not waiting. >> alternative strategies. any idea what they might be? >> reporter: john, i think it's a lot more of what you've been seeing. the security council has been deadlocked, unable to get some action, possibly sanctions against the regime, basically what they're doing is planning for the day after. they're kind of strengthening the opposition saying one of the main problems is that the opposition isn't unified. they're working on that, working on trying to plan for the day after training both politician, civil servants to try to provide services in the event that the regime -- and trying to strengthen sanctions in lieu of the security council being able to impose sanctions. working with a lot of other countries just trying to strengthen the squeeze on the regime. >> secretary clinton also committed some money. pl

a republican and democrat agreeing on much besides that this week. and for the worst week, it's u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of rep
, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questions about his foreign policy. remember, he just said there was a few bumps in the road. iraq is unraveling. al-qaeda is coming back. afghanistan is in total disarray because of this killing of americans by afghan military people and it's because the president keeps announcing we're leaving and it's overruled his military advi
